 THEIR leaves falling - always adding to the detritus of life passed.



GOD is hidden, his purpose unclear, time short and so much to be resolved. The body of man reveals the entrails of life, twisted within the gut, covered by thin layers of tissue; the skin not the fabric but merely the outer garment, within which we all lie exposed.


WHERE is the soul?

NOT yet found its place within this body of creation. 

WHERE within the human form does this tincture of life reside?

HOW does it pass on its soul to the next persona?

IF it does not, then where goes ALL the inherited wisdom of the past?



So penned Leonardo da Vinci in his codex vitae 49 whilst spending his last

days at Le Clos Luce in the grounds of Chateaux d'Amboise in Loire, France;

and just a few months prior to his death in 1519 the following ...



For the pattern of life shall continue and man shall learn more (through the power of visual thinking ) as to his welfare and conduct and shall benefit as he may wish from my humble investigations.



But the greatest bond in life is LOVE; and that should receive a fuller understanding and be the basis of righteousness in all dealings between man and woman. That is the great mystery which can provide the logic for our being in this world, and it is more substantial than the creations of machines or weapons.


Dreams are the passionate release of our souls, and in

them is the spirit contained  by which we should persevere

and fulfil our lives, so that in death we will have acquitted

our dues and not been envious of others.


ALL is in NATURE - WE are ALL a circumstance of NATURE


In pace, Io Leonardo


NO RESPECT for your environment - NO RESPECT for YOURSELF

"Joy at the smallest things comes to you only when you have accepted death. But if you look out greedily for all that you could still live, then nothing is great enough for your pleasure, and the smallest things that continue to surround you are no longer a joy. Therefore I behold death, since it teaches me how to live. If you accept death, it is altogether like a frosty night and an anxious misgiving, but a frosty night in a vineyard full of sweet grapes. You will soon take pleasure in your wealth. Death ripens. One needs death to be able to harvest the fruit. Without death, life would be meaningless, since the long-lasting rises again and denies its own meaning. To be, and to enjoy your being, you need death, and limitation enables you to fulfill your being."

Falling Leaves - having fallen - return to THEIR ROOTS

The Law of Gender states that there is a dual principle of male and female. It further states that every seed has an incubation period before it can manifest.

One thing we need to be very aware of is that ideas and thoughts are seeds just like the seeds you might plant in a garden. If you were to purchase a package of sunflower seeds you would probably read the back of the package to see how long it would take before the sunflower matures. This is the gestation period for the plant. I believe we all understand this concept. It’s the same for a woman having a baby.

We wouldn’t expect her to announce today she was expecting and then show us her new bundle of joy tomorrow, would we?

I find it interesting that we understand the concept of gestation when it comes to everything else in nature, except when we want a goal or ideal to manifest itself. So many people give up their goals because they didn’t manifest at exactly the time they wanted them to. This is very sad.

We live in an instant gratification society, but that’s not how Universal Law of Gender works.

NO THING happens in LIVING NATURE that is not in relation to

THE WHOLE as the BALANCED ECO-SYSTEM which Homo Sapiens

must now restore to ensure the survival of LIFE on EARTH.


The MINDFULNESS Mind Map provides a matrix of 49 "tunnels" - designed for and by the masses - allowing access to a place conducive to Coexistence, Cooperation and Collaboration - such that the collective all-inclusive first person singular present tense, third person objective - point of view - will then lead to the establishment of a new model & method of wealth creation, mutually beneficial to ALL.

AS Adi Da has written - 

"Death makes your entire life bullshit. Don’t you see? That’s the problem."

This biography of the ginkgo tree offers a potent mix of science, history, and culture, exploring how plants have changed our lives and our planet. And Peter Crane . . . is the perfect person to tell the tale. . . With its meticulous footnotes, satisfying referencing and gripping narrative, I can see this becoming a commuter’s favorite for scientists and general readers alike. . . Ginkgo will inspire you to know and care for the organisms with which we share this planet in a new way.”—Sandra Knapp, Nature

Almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear  of

embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of

death, leaving only what is truly important.  Remembering that you

are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking

you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason

not to follow your heart.

“Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water loses its purity and in cold 

 weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigor of

 the mind.“

                                           Leonardo da Vinci

When one considers the actions of our "masters of the globe"

I invariably amuse myself by thinking about Leonardo da Vinci's

take on them which was that they were -

"as wise as the wind they fart from their arses"

Mushrooms have an extraordinary ability to control the weather,

scientists have learnedBy altering the moisture of the air around

them, they are able to whip up winds that blow away their spores and

help them disperse. Plants use a variety of methods to spread seeds,

including gravity, forceful ejection, wind, water and animals.

Mushrooms have long been thought of as passive seed spreaders,

releasing their spores and then relying on air currents to carry them.

But new research has shown that mushrooms are able to disperse

their spores over a wide area even when there is not a breath of

wind - by creating their own 'weather'.

Humans may have evolved with genes acquired from plants

micro-organisms and fungi according to a new study. The

University of Cambridge findings challenge long-held perceptions

about evolution and suggest that the process may be ongoing.

The findings also confirm the conclusions of a controversial 2001

study which suggested that humans may have evolved with

genes acquired from plants but had much less data available to

analyse. Academics widely dismissed its findings at the time and

methods used. Researchers now accept that around one per cent

of the human genome could have been transferred from plants and

other sources following the significantly larger study. The mechanism

by which genes spread is a process known as horizontal gene transfer

(HGT), in which bacteria share genetic information.

THE Earth's Internet: How Fungi Help Plants Communicate

Plants have their own interconnected networks that

allow them to communicate with each other, sometimes

over considerable distances!
